A new study was released stating that three-quarters of parents fail at using car seats correctly.
Unfortunately, most parents then their child's car seats around, facing the front position at an earlier age than what is recommended.
Previously, U.S. guidelines permitted the use of keeping children in a rear facing seat until the age of 1. In March of 2011, that all changed. The American Academy of Pediatrics changed that recommendation of keeping children in rear facing seats until the age of 2.
Car seats are vital in order to keep your children safe while in a vehicle. Making sure that you are using the seat correctly is just as equally important.
When you get a car-seat, please make sure that you read the entire instruction manual. Not only will you know what exactly you need to do, but it will also give you peace of mind.
Please be sure to drive safe and drive smart!
